Hear, O ye heavens, and give ear, O earth, and rejoice ye inhabitants thereof, for the Lord is God, and beside him there is no Savior. Great is his wisdom, marvelous are his ways, and the extent of his doings none can find out. His purposes fail not, neither are there any who can stay his hand. From eternity to eternity he is the same, and his years neverfail. For thus saith the Lord—I, the Lord, am merciful and gracious unto those who fear me, and delight to honor those who serve me in righteousness and in truth unto the end. Great shall be their reward and eternal shall be their glory.

Sestra Stoutova!!!

So, I am now in Don Valley!! Our area here is pretty weird. We live near the Sheffield City center, but we have to travel to towns surrounding Sheffield. In Brid there were NO missionaries anywhere close to where I was, but considering I am now serving in a legit city, we have about five other sets of missionaries within 20 minutes of us! We are also the only Sister missionaries in our mission that serve in a major city, so it's pretty exciting!

The area is epic. We found 14 new investigators this week! Sister Freeman is absolutely amazing! We are having so much fun together! 
My name here is now Sestra Stoutova!!! Haha, I love it so much!
Also, we are serving in a unit inside of a ward. So we are the Don Valley unit (and we actually have church at the Don Valley stadium) and we are in the Sheffield 1 ward. It's all very new and exciting. :) And this unit is the largest group of Slovakians in the world (even more than Slovakia itself!), so that is also very exciting.
DEEANN, YOU GOT BAPPPTTTIIIZZZZED (or Krst, in Slovak :)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is so epically excitinggggg!!!! I am seriously so happy about this, Miss Deeann, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!! I can't wait to go home and give you a big hug!!!
But yeah. I would tell you more about the people that we are teaching, but I can't remember any of their names. Their names are all said WAY funny, but then are just common names like Lucy or something. But then there is the EXTREMELY common man's name of Frantishek, which reminds me of Shrek. . . but anyway.
Being here is such an amazing blessing! I honestly love getting to serve with the Slovakian speaking people. I never thought I would do this, but I know that the Lord has called me here. But I probably won't be a Slovak speaker my whole mission, just while I'm in this area. Considering it's the only sisters area that is Slovakian speaking. :)
I love you all!!!!
Sestra Stoutova
